Welcome from our Headteacher
Welcome to Virgo Fidelis Convent Senior School’s website. As a Catholic school we pride ourselves in welcoming students of all faiths and backgrounds from the ages of 11 to 18. We are a caring and fully inclusive community. We strive to give all our students the opportunity to fulfil and achieve their true potential. The core value of our message is that of the Gospel message; every student has a talent, God given gifts, a calling to love their neighbour as themselves and all whom we meet in life are a reflection of the image of Christ. We have a passion to mould and inspire women leaders of the future, instilled with the Gospel values of justice, equality and love.
As a school we are proud of our history and heritage. We continue to work within the tradition of Mother Saint Mary, who believed in education providing the catalyst for change and who said 'Give to the children the wish to do well and you will have gained everything’. This message is still very much alive today in Virgo Fidelis Convent Senior School and was reflected in our recent Ofsted Inspection where we were judged as ‘Good’ and in Section 48 as ‘Outstanding’. Our dedicated and caring staff work tirelessly to deliver this.
About our school
Our caring and committed staff recognise the importance of creative and exciting teaching and how this contributes to student achievement. Our young people leave school with the tools to solve problems for themselves, understand both their rights and responsibilities and are prepared for challenging further study post-18. We recognise that our students have unique strengths and talents and encourage them to explore and develop these in our very supportive environment.
I firmly believe that for your daughter to achieve her aspirations, her learning is best supported by a very strong partnership with parents/carers. Virgo Fidelis' strong pastoral care will ensure that your daughter has appropriate support throughout her time with us.
Our prospectus and website alone cannot take the place of personal contact. I encourage you to visit our school and experience for yourselves our friendly approach and the reasons for our success.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our site and if you wish to visit our school please contact us to arrange a visit.
